Supplement to Dinnshenchas Érenn (version C) in RIA MS D ii 2

  • Medieval Irish literature, Dinnshenchas Érenn
A collection of dinnshenchas articles, much of it in prose, that is uniquely attested in RIA MS D ii 2 (ff. 81v-90r), where it occurs as a supplement to a copy of Dinnshenchas Érenn (recension C). Many items are unique to this manuscript, while some of the material appears to have been derived from other texts, such as Tochmarc Emire, Lebor gabála Érenn and Cath Maige Mucrama, and even other recensions of Dinnshenchas Érenn.
